First look Alex Colome

 

Posesses electric, above average stuff.

 

Has enough velocity to get away with pitches in middle of zone

 

Three plus pitches

 

I’ve stop being amazed at the kind of pitching talent the Rays bring up from the minor leagues

 

Deliberate on mound,  

 

Good poise in tight situations,  settled down well after first couple of hitters.  

 

I see a little bit of Pedro Martinez in his delivery and how he gets to his power position

 

Effortless 95-97

 

87-89 CH

 

change up has great depth, can be out pitch

 

tight slider with good depth and break

 

throws from stretch/hybrid windup to simplify movement in delivery

 

not afraid to use change up behind in the count

 

inconsistent line to home plate

 

his line to the plate tends to move toward the third base side and he will frequently fly open on front side early to get back on line

 

tendency to fly open, get off line and miss up on his arm side and get underneath his slider

 

does not throws inside much to LHB

 

appears to fight with delivery and feel at times

 

concerned that he doesn’t throw to his glove side consistently enough.  LHB’s could get comfortable off of him when they know he doesn’t pitch inside enough.  Also, when he gets underneath slider they tend to miss in middle up plate, up in the zone

If he can become consistent and comfortable with his delivery, he has the chance to be a 2-3 type starter for years to come.  If he can’t maintain his delivery for 100+  pitcheswith his delivery he has the stuff to be an above average late-inning reliever in the future at the big league level
